Producers: Aanand L. Rai, Anurag Kashyap

Release Date: 7th September 2018

Manmarziyan is one of the most anticipated releases of this year for two reasons – Anurag Kashyap and Abhishek Bachchan. For director Anurag Kashyap, whose repertoire of work includes movies like Gangs of Wasseypur, Manmarziyan would be a departure from his usual noir movies. Manmarziyan would also witness the return of Abhishek Bachchan after a hiatus of two years.

Manmarziyan is an intense coming-of-age love story on the theme of ‘the heart wants what it wants’. The shooting of the movie is scheduled at Amritsar, Delhi, and Kashmir. The film is written by Kanika Dhillon, who was previously associated with films like Om Shanti Om, Billu Barber, and Ra.One. The movie is jointly produced by Anurag Kashyap headed Phantom Films and Aanand L. Rai headed Colour Yellow Productions.

Junior Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu are the lead actors. The movie will also star Vicky Kaushal, who had previously worked with Anurag Kashyap in Mukkabaaz.

The first look of the film was released on March 20, 2018. Abhishek Bachchan is in a turban and he seems to be gazing out of a window with an intense look on his face. Meanwhile, Taapsee Pannu and Vicky Kaushal appear to be two young lovers. In the movie, Taapsee Pannu plays the role of a sports store owner.  If you missed out on the first look, here it is.

This is what lead actress Taapsee Pannu had to say about the movie, “It is a typical Anurag Kashyap style of love story, where you do not have black and white characters. Everyone has certain flaws. It is presented by Aanand L Rai, who is known for these small time town beautiful (stories).”
